Visitors to Spadina Museum on Sundays (Noon to 5 p.m.) from September 30 to November 4, will have the pleasure of seeing artist Amanda Burk working on pieces inspired by this turn-of-the-century historic house. At the end of her residency, her work will be exhibited at Spadina Museum from November 9 to January 6, 2008.
In her words:
"In preparing for my residency at the Museum, I find myself thinking about all the memory the Spadina Museum must hold; the people who have roamed the halls as inhabitants or as visitors over the years and the tangible and intangible traces they have left in the space. I have also been thinking about the impact architecture and place has on us, that is, how the spaces and places we inhabit shape who we are. I am interested in how small details of architecture and of our surroundings, like a particular decorative carving on the arm of a chair, will embed themselves vividly in our memory.
I am interested in the Museum as both an enduring physical structure and a transitory space of human activity, memory, and experience. During my residency at the Spadina Museum, I will be producing a series of graphite drawings that examine the physical and transient aspects of the Historic House and Garden, which will be called "Thresholds". I anticipate that in crossing the threshold of the Historic House this Fall, its history, architecture and presence will have a significant and meaningful impact on my work."
An extensive biography and examples of previous work can be found on her website www.amandaburk.com.
"We think Amanda's work will blend beautifully into the house's legacy of art and artists and are very pleased to have her on site this month. This program is very special to all of us and Amanda's presence will add enormously to the experience visitors will have as they tour Spadina Sundays this fall," said Karen Edwards, Museum Administrator for the Historic Houses of Old Toronto.
This annual program commemorates Lynn Donoghue, who was a respected and critically acclaimed artist and portraitist. A member of the museum board, Ms. Donoghue was a strong supporter of the three historic houses - Colborne Lodge, Mackenzie House, and Spadina Museum: Historic House & Gardens. The Lynn Donoghue Artist in Residence Program continues the legacy initiated by John Howard of Colborne Lodge, founding member of the Society of Artists and Amateurs (1834); William Lyon Mackenzie's printing endeavours; and the Austin women of Spadina through their patronage of the arts as members of The Women's Art Association of Canada, Toronto.
Spadina Museum: Historic House & Gardens was built in 1866 and occupied by the Austin family until 1982. The house is set on six acres of beautifully landscaped grounds including rolling lawns, an intimate orchard and one of Toronto's finest restored Victorian and Edwardian Gardens. The furniture, art and decoration are original to the house and reflect the Toronto art scene of the late 19th and early 20th century and its Victorian, Edwardian and Art Nouveau influences.
The Museum Board of Colborne Lodge, Mackenzie House and Spadina Museum, as part of Toronto Culture, City of Toronto, in partnership with the Ontario College of Art & Design (OCAD), and with the support of Romspen Investment Corporation, present this third annual Lynn Donoghue Artist in Residence Program.
Spadina Museum is located at 285 Spadina Road, Toronto. The site can be reached at 416-392-6910 or spadina@toronto.ca. Paid parking is available next door at Casa Loma.
